i was thinking about a few games i wanted to buy (all run through steam) but im really just not sure which one to buy. I was thinking about buying either: The Ship, Day of Defeat Source, or Call of Duty. now i played The Ship on the free weekend at my friends house and i thought it was really inovative and orriginal and thats what im leaning towards most, however, players say the lag is really bad. My friend has DoDS, and its a really fun game, requiers skill and all, but i already have CSS and they seem pretty similar in most ways. Call of Duty just came to mind when i saw it on steam and i know it was like the biggest thing back when it came out so i know its good but i've kind of drifted away from single player games. Therefore, i want all of these games but need help deciding which one to get. also, if you would like to recomend any other 20$ steam games, feel free. Thank you.:)
I would definetly go for DoDS or CoD (Call of Duty). I paid and bought The Ship when it first came out and it was fun.......for about 2 days or so. Then the feeling for it bogged down and got a tad boring. CoD and DoDS are both very great games and are hard to choose between. CoD has 2 singeplayer demos that you can download here (the first 2 demos are Call of Duty, the last one is a demo for the expansion, United Offensive) Each Call of Duty demo is a different SP level so you can check them both out and see if you like it. CoD has got great a Single-Player experiance with really intense and dramatic moments. The singe-player campaign isnt a short one either and is longer than most games I've played. It also has good and satisfying multiplayer with tons of fun mods and such. Only down side is the game is a bit dated and doesnt look as great as DoD:S. DoD:S is only, and all about the Multi-player. There isnt a demo for DoD:S (that im aware of anyways) so you cant really know if your gonna like it or not unless you buy it. Even though the game is Multi-Player only, its very satisfying and fun. Its nothing like CSS (which I thought it was going to be when I got it) since you have to capture flags and defend or attack points. You can pick different soldier classes such as Sniper, Assault, RPG, etc. Source graphics also look great on it. Basically I'd go download the Call of Duty demos and see if you like it. I'm sure you'll be able to make a decision after you've played the demos.
My favorite game on steam right now is Red Orchestra: Ostfront. It is a WW2 based game set on the Eastern Front (Germans and Russians only) and is deticated to realism. There are many usable vehicles in the game ranging from APCs to Heavy Tanks.
However, if you don't like the idea of being killed in one shot by an MG42 shooting at 1200 rounds per minute at 500 meters while you shoot back with an SMG that doesn't even reach him, don't try this game.
If you do like the sound of that, then get this game. It's graphics are outdated compared to new games but they aren't bad at all and if you have it on 1280x1024 you will like how it looks.
I honestly don't know how much it costs on steam, but I got it all wal-mart for 30 bucks, I'm sure you can download it on steam for around 25 though.
Feel me. Do I feel pretty?

Try Defcon. You'll love it! It has a free demo so you can try it out. It's the only game I've bought through Steam.
It's only $14.95 on Steam, so it a little under $5.00 under your budget or price limit.
oh i forgot one big thing: my computer SUCKS for gaming. heres what i have on it:
Dell DV051 (or E310) runs on XP Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.8 ghz (2 CPU'S) 1014 MG of RAM really shitty graphics card (compatible with direct X 9)
how do you think these games will run on my POS rig? especially multiplayer, cause on big maps on CS i get like 16 fps. are any of these games as demanding as CS?
